[إذا كان يوم القيامة قال الله لي ولعلي بن أبي طالب رضي الله عنه: أدخلا الجنة من أحبكما، وأدخلا النار من أبغضكما.وذلك قوله تعالى: أَلْقِيَا فِيْ جَهَنَّمَ كُلَّ كَفَّارٍ عَنِيْدٍ [ق:24.
On the Day of Resurrection, Allah will say to me and ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib radiya Llahu ‘anhu, “Enter into Jannat whoever loves you two, and enter into the Fire (of Jahannam) whoever hates you two.” This is in reference to the verse, ‘[Allah will say], ‘Throw into Hell every obstinate disbeliever…’
Ibn al Jawzi narrates this hadith — ‘Abdul Rahman ibn Muhammad informed us — Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn ‘Ali al Khayyat informed us — Ahmed ibn Muhammad ibn Durust informed us — ‘Umar ibn al Hassan ibn ‘Ali al Ashnani informed us — Ishaq ibn Muhammad ibn Aban al Nakha’i informed me — Yahya ibn ‘Abdul Hamid al Himmani narrated to us — Sharik ibn ‘Abdullah narrated to us, “We were with al A’mash during his sickness in which he (eventually) passed away. Abu Hanifah, Ibn Abi Layla, and Ibn Shubrumah entered his presence. Abu Hanifah turned towards him and said, ‘O Abu Muhammad, fear Allah; for verily you are in the first day from the days of the Akhirah and the last day from the days of the Dunya. And you used to narrate ahadith regarding ‘Ali ibn Abi Talib radiya Llahu ‘anhu that, if you had rather remained quiet about, it would have been better for you.’ Al A’mash said, ‘Can this be said to someone like me? Sit me up, sit me up. Abu al Mutawakkil narrated to me — from Abu Sa’id al Khudri who said, ‘The Messenger of Allah salla Llahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said…’ He went on to mention the hadith. Abu Hanifah said, ‘Stand (everyone); he will not bring forth another hadith clearer than this. Stand (everyone); he will not bring forth another hadith more overwhelming than this.’ By Allah, we did not go past the door except that al A’mash had already passed away.”
Ibn al Jawzi said, “This hadith is mawdu’ (fabricated). It is a lie attributed to al A’mash. The person responsible for forging this report is Ishaq al Nakha’i. We have stated earlier that he was from the extremists and liars. Moreover, he forged it onto al Himmani. He too, is a kadhdhab (liar).”
Al Dhahabi, al Suyuti, Ibn ‘Iraq, and al Shawkani all mention this hadith in their respective works on fabrications.
